THE WEBSITES DESCRIPTION:

REVENUE FROM THE SITES

The websites all generate revenue from two sources, Google Adsense and Advertising.  The majority of the revenue comes from advertising. 

Each site offers guest posts, free and sponsored.  The sponsored posts are articles written by other companies and individuals who want to access the readers on our blogs and will pay for the advertising to have their articles featured.

BankingorBust.com also has a financial spreadsheet product with powerpoints related to valuations that is sold on the site.  However, the site has not been optimized to offer this for sale and for that reason the sales have not been consistent.

BLOG CONTENT AND GUEST POSTS:

All sites are run on WordPress.  The sites have a built in plugin that allows anyone who wants to sign-up and submit an article (post) to be added to the site. 

There are three options for everyone to select when adding the article.  Free, Rush, Urgent.  The Rush and Urgent posts are listed within 24 hours and the writer is charged $50 - $75 for the post to have the article posted quickly.   The free articles take up to 10 days to be listed on the site.

The guest posts provide enough content between the free and sponsored listings that no additional content has been needed.

HISTORY OF THE SITES:

We acquired the sites in December 2011 and prior. Data prior to that data is not available since it was listed with a previous owner at that time.

WHY ARE WE SELLING?

Although this website continues to increase in revenue and value every month that we own it, we’ve decided it’s time to focus on just two market niches for the sites we acquire and hold. 

For this reason we are selling several websites from our portfolio that don’t match the niches we are building our future portfolio with. 

Two other auctions we currently have on flippa include:

OnlineJobsFree.com

OnlinePregnancyCenter.com

 

QUESTIONS?

Please post a comment or drop me a PM. Happy to discuss over [phone, IM, skype].

 

PLEASE READ: If you have an account under 1 year old, or have no feedback, please contact us BEFORE bidding.

We are extremely selective, as we would like our site to go to the right person.

    i have 3 things i would like your help to clarify:
    1) MyDividenedStocks.com doesn't resolve...(it is misspelled...that might be the issue). what is real domain?
    2) http://www.bankingorbust.com/ has a mailing list....how many optins to this list and is this list sold with the package?
    is the world market watch section an ad?
    3) You mention your revenue comes from pay to post, which runs $50 or $75, so many payments on your paypal screen shots don't fit these denominations....$90, 29.95, 104, 62.26, multiple payments in EURO, etc...please explain

    The dividend site url is http://www.mydividendstocks.com/
    The email list with bankingorbust doesn't have hardly anyone on it. I haven't been sending emails to the list either. It's less than a dozen. But you can have the names.
    Yes, world market watch is not an ad, just a stock ticker bar.
    For your 3rd comment, the reason for the differences in payments, is that we promote multiple posts each of these sites, which is why we are selling them as one package. So if someone wants to advertise on 20smoney.com, we also ask if they'd like to advertise on the other sites as well. We provide discounts when they do. We also have some clients who have a set budget and they can't go over that amount, so we've worked with them to allow posts for less money.

    I understand its probably easier for you to sell the sites together, but I'm only interested in one. Are you willing to sell an individual site?

    The auction has not yet reached the reserve, although it's very close. If you are the highest bidder and the reserve is not met you have the first right to negotiate with us after the auction.

    We just changed the reserve price to $1 more than the current bid. Bid now if you want to make sure you get the listing. :)

    Thanks Chris. I'm only interested in one of the small sites, not 20smoney. That's why I'm not bidding. Maybe the winner can contact me if he's only interested in 20smoney.

    How is the revenue divided?
    If I look through the months I can not see the $1,348 avg in the data.

    75% of the revenue is from direct ad sales and 25% from adwords and another ad provider on the site.
